Tuesday, 3 November, 2020, American Election: As International Businessmen, We Present Our Analyses, For Those Prudent: Where The Future Winners Will Be, And Advise Where, And When, Others Should Discard ‘Losing Cards In Their Hands’.

The coming, election in America, will offer some Industries,  Investors, and even Countries, Improved Benefits and Profits, thereafter.  Current Investors and some other Countries may find: “The Future May Not Bode Well”; As to those Industries and locations where monies are presently committed, adjustments will be needed.

For our Subscribers, gain from our analyses of businesses, countries, and industries that will be moving ahead in 2021; this due to results of the coming election. We foresee the ‘shackles’ of many decades of ‘Special Interest Groups’ conniving [lead by the Puppet Masters’ Masters] being removed. That constant economic burden to America, being made effete, will provide opportunities for growth, seldom seen. As to other industries, that have historically prospered due to the ‘graft’, one may want to ‘Short their stocks’.

Reality: Beyond the horizon, many changes await, for America. A word to the Wise is sufficient.

The Virus Of “Arrogance” Can Be As Deadly As The ‘Natural Diseases’ Created By Mother Nature

As we look at the various decisions made by various Business, Intelligence, Government, and Political leaders, we cannot but recognize the dire consequences which have occurred; this by their arrogance of the inviolability of their ideations. There are a number of examples available; these which caused loss of life to innocent people.

One Business, a Airframe manufacture, its arrogant executives ‘bought off’ on the idea: Pilots of various airlines could and would learn how to fly a ‘re-vamped’ model of a aircraft; this, not by using expensive “Flight Simulators” but by using “Apple I-Phones” with a pertinent ‘App’! While we both applaud, and we all use the excellent “Apple” products, we think it was absolutely ludicrous to go ‘down this runway’ for Pilot Education and Training. The consequences of the “Let us gain even more profit by NOT purchasing Flight Simulators, but use ‘Apple I-Pads'” were the deaths of innocent crew members and passengers on two aircraft. We find it most interesting that, to date, NO government pronouncements of “Criminal Culpability” and prosecution on these inept ‘Executives’ have been made as to these travesties. Instead, the head of the company merely stated his angst over these deaths.

A far greater cause of both massive deaths, as well as a Nation’s destruction physically, was the opinion by the head of a Intelligence Agency; this, that Iraq’s President Saddam Hussein, possessed “Weapons of Mass Destruction”. The Director of the Agency reportedly stated: “It was a ‘Slam Dunk’ that Saddam had such weaponry”! As a result, Governments‘ leaders arrogantly decided to devastate not just Saddam Hussein, and his sons Ouday and Qusay, but also the country of Iraq! The fact that Saddam’s Mistress, who was a intelligence source to the Intelligence Agency at the time, had allegedly told it: ‘Saddam was fearful of the unreliability of such weapons and distrusted them’! We also, understand that for certain individuals, who were and are currently part of the “Governatorship Cabal”: ‘Strong-man’ Saddam was a impeding force, that was to be removed; along with other area strongmen. However, we are of the opinion that hegemonic desires to destroy a country, its people, and culture, to: “Get Rid Of Three People”, is a Crime Against Humanity.

Political leaders have negligently caused the deaths of people as to the current CV 19 pandemic. We think they have done this with their arrogance of thinking how they ‘know’ how to eliminate the virus from infection of their citizens. Many acted through shut-downs of businesses and restrictions on mobility in cities. The economically ruined business owners and investors have allegedly had heart attacks, strokes, et al, resulting in their eventual deaths, and some have committed suicide. Citizens, such as many in New York City, have ‘self-destructed’ due to confinements mandated by Government authorities. Unfortunately, the citizens did NOT gain “CV19” immunity through their isolation.

The ‘Human Frailty’ of arrogance needs to be curtailed. Leaders need to know their positions in their careers, do not bestow on them omnipotence and omniscience; in fact, unless they are Founders of their organizations, they are immediately replaceable. Most have merely risen to the top by acceding to the wishes of their superiors. They are NOT innovators; they are merely ‘cogs in a wheel’. We, as International Businessmen, see them time and again.

Reality: Those who can look into a mirror and see a ‘Halo of Wisdom’ above their heads, should inspect above the mirror for defective lighting.

World Shipping Industry: For Captains And Crews There Are No “Safe Harbors” For Free And Ready Transits Home

The current Covid 19 [CV19] pandemic has spawned a ‘Social Pandemic’, we, who, for many decades, closely follow ‘Merchant Shipping’, have never seen before. It is a situation of government leaders deciding not to allow crew transits from ships to shore for egress to other nations; for CV 19 contamination reasons. Evidencing much ineptness of logical thought, these government leaders disregard the facts of crews being isolated during their voyages and are NOT carrying CV 19 with them. These ‘situations’ offer: “The crews are not contaminated; people on shore may well be. Ergo, the crews face the risk of contracting CV 19 [not the other way around].”

Furthering the ‘Contamination Concept’ we wonder how many “Ship Chandlers” outfits have been closely tested and or quarantined; this, for their interfaces with both ships’ crew-members and supplies coming in-bound off the ships, goods for later re-sale to other ships, to their organizations? We have heard of none. Perhaps because they are ‘Locals’, governments’ Ports Authorities have deemed them “In-contaminable’?

Going ‘up the ladder towards the bridge’ there are many “middle-men” who are responsible for ships’ crew’s employment. It appears to us they have done next to nothing, on a macro-level, to put pressure to bear on their governments to de-escalate the ‘Slave-Labor (Voluntary, turned to Involuntary Servitude) being ‘stuck aboard ship’ for months.

Upon the bridge, ship-owners, bankers, investors, et al have acted with ‘Effete Dynamism‘ in solving this crisis to crews. As the adage states: “What goes around, will come around.” A dearth of enthusiastic crew members makes for a greater potential of: Cargo mis-handlings; Crew Injuries; Fires; and Sailing Mishaps.

It is our opinion that it is well likely that Maritime Insurance costs will rise, as maladies start occurring at a greater rate in the industry. As many crew members decide to change careers or retire earlier, “newbies” who enter the business will make a greater incidence of errors; leading to many of the aforementioned problems. There is no substitute for experience. As International Businessmen, we would think that at the present moment, many Insurers in Hamilton, London, New York City and others, would be taking a serious look at potential risk exposures brought about mainly through ineptness of decisions and dearth of training.

The other adjoining group that should be closely reviewed are the ‘Ship Registrations’. We have not seen a great deal of progress by any of them to conjoin with each other and quickly solve this ‘Humanitarian Issue’ for ship crews. “Why Not”, we ask. Is it that managements of such registries ‘do not have a clue’ to solving problems? They do have a responsibility to regulate those vessels under their purview.

Due to “Supply Chain” conundrums, we find it amazing that the world Main Stream Media, has largely ignored this vital industry’s current dilemma. If goods cannot be transferred from the manufacturer to the wholesaler; then, goods from the wholesale to the retailer to the customers, are a mere hologram. Who outside of “Bloomberg” clearly presents this dilemma to the public? We, as analysts of all types of shipping everywhere, are familiar; the “Men and Women of the world” are not. They will be irate when they cannot locate that which has NOT been shipped to their favorite stores. Is not this subject newsworthy?

Reality: The severity of a Pandemic is exacerbated by multiple very poor decisions, by many, in various ‘arenas’, that have portrayed themselves as omniscient; their decisions are substantively ‘Chalcopyrite’ [Fool’s Gold].

Countries Getting Through The Covid Crisis Are Quantified

An excellent report, thorough in its scope, has been created by ‘Horizon Insight and Strategy’; it is called “Recover, (Re)build: Exploring Country Capacity Post-COVID”. This work analyzes 122 countries throughout the world and looks at ‘Resiliency Elements’ for economic success, after this Influenza gets defeated.

Beyond the economic capitalizations of countries being vastly different, other elements come into play after Covid 19. Using technology by a country’s population, such as the Internet can help; having a workforce ‘mind-think’ of adaptation to the new ‘world’ can be of use; upgrading financial systems will be of assistance; having countries’ Leaders that can ACTUALLY lead would be of great benefit; thinking on a ‘macro’ level is beneficial.

We, as International Businessmen, can also add: ‘Intellect’ is fine but it also needs to be reinforced with ‘Intrepidness’. As we have seen in others, over the many decades, when confronted with a ‘Unknown’, many people just ‘cry into their beers’: “Alas, woe are we.” Weakness is a luxury no one can afford. The World belongs to the Aggressive.

Reality: Although it might at times not appear so, there is reasonableness in being resolute: “It is better to wear out, than to rust out.”

India’s Punjab Produces Performing Products, This, In Very Trying Times: Sonalika Tractors

The adage: ” ‘Trying Times’, for the ‘Weak’, are ‘Crying Times’; for the ‘Strong’ they are ‘Prying Times'”, applies in Punjab, India. The maker of tractors, “Sonalika”, in Hoshiarpur, “pried open, with a ‘crow bar”‘, manufacture and marketing of their fine tractors and received excellent results: Record Sales.

We, in International Business, have seen it time and time again: Manufacturers who look ‘beyond the horizon’, accept conclusions, after their careful analyses, then act decisively. They create better products, offer them at proper ‘price-points’, with aggressive marketing; and, beat their competitors every time! In ‘tight economies’, while consistency of ‘Quality’ will bring forth new ‘lookers’, ‘Realistic Cost’ to customers, will turn them into ‘buyers’. In a “Negative Economy”: a ‘Seller’ must sell, or go out of business; a ‘Buyer’ does not have to buy.

Sonalika Tractors management, obviously put forth its ideation and manufacturing actions, long before, the CV-19 Pandemic. It certainly takes time to source suppliers, build, or have built to specifications, verify quality, then assemble components to create the tractors. While that is occurring, the Marketing/Sales Departments must think of creating ‘Customer Excitement’ for ‘Sizzle Sells’ the products. Where there are no ‘positive’ emotions, there are no purchasers. Obviously Sonalika Tractors personnel accomplished their objectives.

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi must be pleased, for Sonalika Tractors are copacetic with his ‘Make In India’ mantra; a economically sound objective. India certainly has: Natural resources for manufacturing; Personnel quite capable; and Quality of culture, which has and will endure.

Reality: Think ahead, Act ahead; then, Look behind, and see your followers.

Main Stream Media’s Fascination Of Firearm’s Violence Neglects Attention Of Other Means

America’s Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI] released its important listing of firearms ‘Background Checks’ of citizens, for the month of June, 2020. One must be ‘cleared’ by legal authorities, in order to purchase an approved handgun, rifle, or shotgun. The list of ‘negating reasons’ that will prevent a authorization to buy a firearm is quite extensive.

The FBI stated that nearly 4,000,000 ‘National Instant Criminal Background Check System’ (NICS) checks were made in June. This was a historical ‘high’ as to examinations of ‘bona fides’ to purchase arms. A estimated 2,387,524 firearms were sold during the month.

If one reviews the numbers provided by the World Bank [https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/VC.IHR.PSRC.P5], one sees that there are five homicide deaths per one hundred thousand persons in America. Firearms deaths are a mere component of the aforementioned; This, relative to all the countries examined. In conjunction with America’s large population of approximately 331,000,000+, living in 9,833,517 sq. km. [3,796,742 sq. mi.], the death percentage is quite low. As are the number of policemen, per square mile, available ’24/7/365′.

Our having been in various, physically precarious situations over the years, in a variety of geographic locations, particularly in precious metals mining, we can readily understand the enthusiasm of Americans for self-protection. A old mining adage is: “A friend [handgun], when in need, is a friend, indeed.” It is part of the psyche of independence and self-reliance to handle negative situations; if no law enforcement is available, ‘Do your best to survive’.

What we have a very hard time understanding, as International Businessmen, are Main Stream Media’s {MSM’s] incessant attention to shootings, especially in America. Yet, if there are multiple victims: by bludgeoning, poisoning, stabbing or suffocation, NEXT TO NOTHING is mentioned. If any of these hostile actions occur to a single individual, it may not even ‘make the news’. If the hostilities occur in other countries, MSM will barely mention them. Why is that?

As we think about MSM’s rationale for its timid reporting of the aforementioned, non-firearms, hostilities, we ponder such reasoning. Perhaps it is because these ‘Journalism Majors’ are “Acousticians”, who deplore the noises generated by firearms? Kill people quietly, and while not approved by MSM, it is certainly more fashionably “Green’, in an environmental sense. There are no people who suffer ‘Acoustic Trauma’ nor ‘Bilateral Tinnitus’ as a result of the ‘quiet killings’ as there are with firearms.

As we try to make serious sense of MSM’s continual attempts to ‘De-Arm America’ there is one hypothesis that nags at us. That is: “Are those in MSM surreptitiously acting as agents of enemies of America?” “Do they want a ‘Dis-armed America’ because it is too hard to conquer a 331,000,000+ manned ‘citizen-armed militia’? This force with even many more weapons [and bullets] than personnel?” Paranoia: ‘No’, just good military appraisal.

Which armies of any nation on Earth could possibly win against America’s 331,000,00+ ‘combatants’, ‘armed to the teeth’? Which political leader of any hostile country could convince his military leaders of the probability of success in ‘taking on America’? NONE! Those with stars on their uniforms, around the world, understand the teachings of Sun Tzu’s ‘The Art of War’. To wit: “A battle is won or lost before it begins.”

Assuming world leaders understand the numbers of weapons and ammunition, along with the U.S.A. population, then the tactic changes. It goes from not fighting, due to numerical armed inferiority, to: Disarm the possible combatants. This requires of another hostile country: MSM ‘conscripts’ along with ‘pliable politicians’ doing the work for the enemy forces. By ‘raising alarm’ no matter what the facts are, both ‘Agent-Groups’ can try to sell disarmament to the U.S. public. If that does not work, a ‘Executive Order’ might be employed, to by-pass legislation. Unfortunately, these are not ‘movie scenes’ but possible tactics of hegemonic nations.

Another related tactic, as we have written in other articles, is to establish entropy in America through ‘Anarchy’ and ‘Chaos’. By demoralizing the citizenry, political upheaval may result. It is much easier to slaughter the sheep, by wolves, if the faithful sheep dogs, have been removed.

Again, if one thinks beyond the sizzle, he is hearing, he might smell the stench of Treason, which can become quite odoriferous over time. To Cabalists and hypocritical Politicians, we say: “Those of us with experience can readily comprehend your treacheries. Before you strut around pompously, make sure it is not on top of quicksand. There are no long term secrets.”

There is a old “Greek Sheepherder’s adage”, used to judge both politicians and other well-publicized people: “Be most leery of the Wolves, who have learned to bleat, as though they are Sheep”.

Reality: There is no substitute for experience. Get your teeth kicked in enough, and they will become petrified; especially one’s ‘Canines’.

Food For Thought: In Berlin, Necessity Is The Mother Of Invention

Some Berliners have turned their despair into successful action; this, by using their native intellect. They were closed down, of their restaurant activities, by local authorities due to CV-19 concerns. Rather than ‘cry into their beers’, they ideated aggressive tactics for success. These various individuals took their food offerings both to possible customers, in communications, and immediately thereafter, in delivered purchases to their lucky ‘fans’.

Resourceful Germans understand: “When, ‘situations’ get tough, you also get tough; laugh capricious fate in the face, with ‘Survivor’s Confidence'”. One will never develop strong muscles without exercise.

All of these Berliners who took to the road of action, not woeful despair, are to be congratulated. They have acted, as one would expect of ‘Germans’: A synthesis of Intellect combined with Tenacity.

Reality: Fate has no respect for men made of straw.

The ‘Globalists’ “Terrible Times Triumvirate” Agents, Against ‘Internationalists’: N. Tropy and his Steadfast Stalwarts being ‘Ann Archy’ and ‘Kay Oss’

Our having roles in International Business for many decades, has allowed us to qualify as ‘Having been around the block many times’. As such, we have witnessed the same scenarios played out often around the world: ‘Globalists’ who seek conjunctions of many countries into a few ‘blocs’ [for ease of their global control strategies]. ‘Internationalists’ on the other hand, WANT the 200+ Nations on Earth to be independent of each other. A multiplicity of powers: thereby being relatively equal, to each Nation’s unique assets [human and natural], and locations geographically.

As an iceberg displays a mere 10% of itself above the water [90% being submerged, so is ‘murkier’ from above]; such are Globalists’ cabals. They will employ various social tactics, to cause political upheavals, for their own economic gains.

More ‘recent’ examples, of which we have previously written: Joseph Patrick Kennedy Sr.’s attempts to take over Vietnam initially, later, Cuba, then back to Vietnam [after his son was elected U.S. President]. You may want to review our past articles about these subjects. The point being: In EACH case, to achieve economic goals, social entropy was created, which was designed for political changes; so he and his associates could realize vast economic gains. The citizens of those countries ‘be damned’ was their credo.

Presently, throughout the world, there are social movements utilized to hide Globalists true intentions. The plotters want to put political pressure on Nations leaders so they can achieve their own economic goals quicker. There are only a few Strong World Leaders; other Leaders are mere ‘leaders’. This is a reality of life. The plotters think they will win.

When one hears about ‘Global Warming'[now, more ‘fashionably’ “Climate Change”], ‘Clean Energy’ (Geo-Thermal, Solar, and Wind) ask: “Who is funding the protestors?” Moreover, “Who really gains with the changes?”

Another ‘in vogue’ protest now is: “De-funding or Eliminating Police Departments”. “Who gains economically?” We submit: ‘Ann Archy’ and ‘Kay Oss’ would prosper. And both, as one can see on television, can provide protestors’ emotional ‘sizzle’. “Law and Order” be damned. In fact, ‘Masked Robbers” are no longer ‘in play’, today it is ‘Mask-less’ arsonists, looters, robbers, and murderers; because they have ‘legitimate complaints’, some say.

We can continue on but the basic idea is “As with an iceberg with 90% of its mass largely out of easy view, ‘Globalists’ need obscurity. They need Strong Leaders to be removed from office so mere ‘Puppets’ can replace them. If done, ‘Globalists’ can have ‘free rein’ to rule as they choose.

We prefer Nations to freely and openly engage in commerce, while protecting their individual sovereignties. Their commercial regulations apply to themselves, not to other Nations. They cooperate with other countries but do what is best for their own citizenry. Such leaders DO NOT push off their people to other Nations because they are too lazy to solve their own economic difficulties. Interestingly, there will be a small group of ‘wealthy’ in each country of which we are speaking. They just help themselves.

It is our opinion that International Trade should be encouraged anyway possible: Dredging harbors,; building wharfs; facilitating ship licensing; training pilots; expanding airport runways, paving highways, et al.

By NOT having a few “Globalists’ control the world, with citizens being their serfs, people far and wide prosper.

With plentiful commerce, people gain financially. De-regulation, of business activities is the fuel for economic growth. In growth are the roots of survival of Nations.

Reality: The diversity of Nations is copacetic with the proviso: “Nature abhors singularities”. The ‘More, The Better’.

‘Segway’: A Utilitarian Product, Under-Designed, While Over-Priced, Sinks Into “Economic Quicksand”

The ‘automatic balancing ability’ of the Segway transporter has apparently failed in balancing performance vis-a-vis cost of production; and, subsequent pricing for retail ownership. It has been announced that this possibly commercially-viable vehicle will no longer be produced due to lack of world-wide sales.

As International Businessmen with decades of experience in ideation of products based on exotic materials and metals, preliminary design, manufacturing cost estimating, production, and marketing, we have seen potentially ‘great’ products, of others fail. Many of these ‘goods’ would be able to help people become more productive in their daily lives. Quite often, a potential manufacturer of a product wants great unit profits to be in their business plan. The fact that buyers might not value the product at the same price-point, is of little concern. So, the item is manufactured, offered for sale, and sits in the ‘showroom’ with no buyers.

As to Segway, a lack of well-engineered stopping capability in the vehicle, and apparent lack of operator controlled-sensitivity adjustments, as designed, doomed it to sales failure. A novice operator should have more ‘retarded’ velocity/vector capacity than of an experienced user, such as policemen patrolling avenues. Furthermore, in such a example, braking should be enhanced electronically for the novice.

All of us thought the Segway was a great move forward in personal transportation; we still do. However, a advanced iteration of this platform will be essential. This, if the present Chinese owners hope to sell their product. Right now, one might ask: “Show me where the “$5,000.00″ is built into this product.” [On a mass-production scale, it is not apparent.] If they cannot, then the ‘Price/Value’ relationship is overloaded by the price; it will NOT sell.

A ‘fairly good product’ at a “too-high” price will not sell; a ‘very good product’ at a “too-high” price, may suffer the same fate. An old aircraft adage: “If it is designed well, it will fly well; If priced well, the ‘bird’ will sell well.” applies, even to Segways.

Reality: It is not the marketed product, at a particular price-point, that is important; but, the consumer’s estimation of the value to be received by that product, at that cost to he or she, that makes a sale or not.

Russians Use “Tunnel-Through” Technique To Tackle Coronavirus [CV-19]

Russian Technologists have, very wisely, decided to help protect President Vladimir Putin from Corona Virus [CV-19] with a fabricated ‘machine’. To their credit, they ideated, designed, and then built , a number of “Mist Microbicide Tunnels”.

As we are manufacturers of technologies ourselves, we commend the designers. Praise should be given to those responsible for the mere simplicity of a ‘Pass Through’ design that expeditiously protects those walking in and out of the machine; Excellent!

The fact that Russian President Putin, as ‘Alpha One”, is protected by this technology, should make other world leaders consider purchasing these devices, forthwith. As the adage, “A ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” is applicable to the CV-19 pandemic. The necessity of protecting Mr. Putin, a World Leader, is imperative, as he serves Russia with all of his ability. ANYTHING that can impede his services must be dealt with immediately. There are too few, great World Leaders, today.

To Nations: Each leader must be duly protected so they can properly serve their citizens. Countries should immediately order these machines; they help minimize the damage which can be caused by CV-19 to their government’s personnel.

Reality: ‘Outstanding’ Nations Leaders are rarities; Other Nations Leaders are merely ‘leaders’.
